Wife and I were talking about what possesses a person to open fire on school kids ?
One thing she brought up is that kids from the big cities don't have much other than Video games for excitement. Are there ratings on Video games as far as content goes ? Does anyone think there is a change between attitudes and personalities between gamers and non gamers ? My experience in this is limited to pong and super mario brothers.

 There are rating on video games that are "suppose" to prevent younger people from playing them. But their parents probably buy it for them anyway.

there are ratings, but many disregard cuz "it's fake ya kno"

scanning through the tv channels will expose you to the equivalent of the nastiest video game

i'm sure it has something to do with it,  but good luck stopping or even fully understanding it



i blame it on the parents.........kinda

I don't buy into people blaming video games for stupid people. I blame it on the negligent parents not doing their jobs and raising their children correctly to know right and wrong.

And there are people that have perfect upbringings that just lose it. But blaming a video game just doesn't make sense to me.

Agreed, I think there are way too many people out there who don't even let their kids get the opportunity to experience what reality is. "Go play your games kids and leave us alone." Dosent matter what kind of game or even how bad it is, many kids dont have any idea what the earth they live on really feels like.

I dont go around guessing cup sizes either I just know a nice rack when I see one.

I don't think anyone is blaming anything , Just asking a few questions. 
 What Is that the concept or goal for of some  of the ADULT video games ? is it good guy against bad guy or it it all against all ?     Is there no value in a human life but you get points for dead people ?   Just asking

Viidio games,parents,lack of armed guards at schools,nut cases,too many guns, take your pick. plenty of blame, but KNOW real answeres.  The only real answer after the shootings is pain and suffering.

 What happened to good ole games like PacMan, Frogger, Donkey Kong.  Now it's a bunch of shooter up games that promote senseless acts. Kids at young ages it blurs that line of right and wrong. I don't think it should be something to be ignored.

u can basically go postal on anything you want in most modern day 1st person shooters

some missions/types of play even call for the mass shooting of a group

i kno when i was younger i played em, (but wasnt too serious , go figure) soooo sometimes when i'd team play with friends who were BIG gamers and VERY serious about what they do (no, my friends werent xdeano, whisky, or bareback) i'd shoot them all right at the end of the mission................just to piss em off......lol

i played games where you killed shit and i have not had the urge to go shoot any one.  Tv games  and all that is a load of bullshit it is on the parents to make sure kids know fake from real.  You can also turn on parental controls my kid plays call of duty and he knows the difference between the game and real soldiers

 I play Call of Duty pretty much to just keep in touch with old college friends in other states that i don't get to see much. 

It is a complete cop-out for people when they blame video games. Just trying to pass the buck from their own accountablility

I used to watch bugs bunny, and I have never wanted to drop an anvil on someones head.

Over in the fun loving muslim world they dont even have cartoons or games and they shoot each other up everyday allday. Who knows why the crazies are just that, but I would really doubt it has to to with this stuff.

Blaming video games is no different than blaming the gun.  I have played all kinds of video games and didn't think about shooting up a school.

Holy crap, Why so offensive ?  Im in no way blaming vidio games , Just asking questions that I have no clue about and then -only then I will form an opinion. I am not bad mouthing vidio games. We are lucky as hell to live where we do and that is why people here are somewhat  normal , We stayed in a highly populated area for a couple years in an apartment. Our neighbors played vidio games louder than heck  nonstop 24-7  They were edgy as hell and rude when I asked if thy could turn it down at night.   Could have been drugs , lack of sleep or vidios or all of the above.    All I know is they needed a hobby or social life.     Again, Just asking an honest question trying to offend anyone.

Lets stop spending our time on blaming the actions of the mentally weak on video games and spend that time teaching our kids that killing is WRONG! (not pointed to anyone on here but at the media.)
